The monthly distribution for hydro dam is based on the average electricity production per months from 2008 to 2011.

The above shown distribution might vary depending on the scenario due to the fact that part of the electricity production increase potential is obtained through increasing the height of the dams. Higher dams allow to transfer electricity production from summer to winter. The higher storage capacity gives the option to turbine less water during summer, saving it for winter. Thus the monthly distribution is modified. For more details about this topic go to Hydro dam cost
